Banned Early Xbox One Owner Reaches Agreement with Microsoft, Will Tell More When Cleared to Do So

Yesterday Twitter user Moonlightswami made the headlines for getting an Xbox One early due to a delivery mishap by Target. He revealed all sorts of details and pictures on the console, but he was temporarily banned after a few hours. Today he had a chat with Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb and apparently everything’s gonna be ok.

Alright, I talked to @majornelson and all is being resolved. He has invited me to the launch event. Details on it are classified.

I won’t be tweeting much about the xbox one until I get cleared to do so, but all is resolved thanks to @majornelson.

The console ban also will be lifted prior to launch. I can’t really say much more, but it is all good. Thank you all for the support!!!

Had about a 30 minute conversation with @majornelson everything is going well, and will be resolved. When I get cleared to talk more about the system I will.

Moonlightswami also mentioned that he’s available for interviews even if there isn’t much he can say, that he was not threatened, and that he agreed to some sort of NDA.

He finally explained the reasoning behind the agreement and specified that Microsoft has been very gracious in its effort to remedy the situation.

Reasoning for not being able to disclose more is some things have not been announced/not fully ready. All i can say.

Microsoft has been very gracious in their effort to remedy the situation since they recognize I was not at fault in this.

All’s well that ends well. We got a lot of info to sate our curiosity, Moonlightswami will get his console back soon, and probably quite a bit more than that, and Microsoft got a marketing pitch that was quite a lot better than what most of its executives with decades of experience did so far. Everyone wins.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
